I love the angle this was taken from. It does give you a different perspective.

I love this building...and almost every other one in Chicago. I was just there and took hundreds of architecture/skyscraper shots and I will share soon...still culling and cropping. Thanks for being my blogger friend.
peace,

I once celebrated a few really good St. Patrick's Days in Cleveland, Ohio, but that is a story for another time.

Neat shot of the Hancock Tower. I walked by it a few times when I was in Chicago last month. I like the exoskeleton.

I was in Canary Wharf recently and there was a similar sight- I felt like I was surrounded by mirrored buildings!

I like yesterday's shot too, the first one... it looks like a sun or some other outer-space event!

Slainte! This greeting hangs by our front door in Italy. Never fails to stimulate conversation.

Friend: You're more than welcome.

PattiKen: And the same to you, Patti.

Moneythoughts: Yeah - it's a monstrous piece, ain't it?

Nan: Ah, yes, the Lens Baby stuff.

Emily: Thank you, ma'am.

Big Mark 243: Thank you, Sir.

Calicobebop: Thank you.
